My Name Is Mud

With all of the rainy weather this week, a Boom Boom might have tracked in the house. He says, “My name is mud.”

My name is mud.

The rain started Sunday. The current prediction is it will end some time on Friday. Maybe. Our yard has turned into a soggy swamp. Towels have been laid down by the back door for paw cleaning after every excursion. Some pup might have, well, boom boomed right over the towels. Wasn’t hard to track him down since his path was quite clear. Landon doesn’t really want to apologize, but does proudly claim, “My name is mud.”
